    I'd make an agreement with the US to allow Israel's citizens into our country, and leave behind an empty radioactive piece of dirt.

    Look Laila, I know you have a good heart, And I know you don't want innocent people dead, Palestinian or Israeli. But you are the one that said "I know where my sympathy lies". As a Jew what am I to think?

    Honestley?
    I don't blame Israel for wanting to retaliate but can they not have gone by it in a different way? How about not stupidly using bombs/air raids in civilian areas. Do they not realise that just possibly, there may be civilians there?
    Yes they were provoked but there is no justification when more civilians are being reported killed than Hamas soldiers. No justification at all and all Israel has once again suceeded in doing is once again giving the militants a PR boost and shooting themselves in the foot.

    I feel sympathy for the Israeli, i believe every life regardless of religion is precious but when i said 'sympathy' i was also partly saying, support.

    I am more inclined to support Palestinians atm over Israel because of the fact the death toll seems higher on one side.

    Hamas rockets rain down on civilian areas. Hamas does not differentiate between civilian and military targets. We are all apes and pigs and should be exterminated.

    Recognizing the destructive power of the IDF and the hopeless mindlessness of the Gazan's incessant attacks on Israel what would you suggest the Palestinians do? Will you suggest future Palestinian attacks on Israel? Or would you suggest they negotiate?

    Yet it seems that despite all the rockets Hamas chuck. Not many Israelis die.

    When Israel seems to do the 'retaliating' the figures goes into double digits

    Do you not see a problem there?

    Really? so you're going to sympathise with murderers that sent rockets every day at innocent israeli kids every day? So yeah, any person killed is sad, but Israel is now in a protective mode, because it can't live like this any more.

    Let me give a little background: For approximately 8 years cities like Sederot and Ashkelon has been absorbing agressive fire from Hamas soldiers. There has been times of calming, but these were always broken by hamas activists. As of now, their rockets are starting to improve and reach longer distances, endangering more citizens. About a week ago, Hamas sent over 80 rockets in one day at Sederot.

    Currently, I am considered in the hamas' fire zone. Every time I go outside I look for supportive walls in case of rockets dropping at me.

    So sure, right now only one person died in israel. But wait a few days, see how many will die, how many rockets will be sent at Israel and possibly suicide bombers enter Israel.

    Besides, unlike Hamas, the Israeli military tries its best to not harm civilians. I assure you that most of the palestinians who died are hamas soldiers that work every day on planning how to inflict terror on innocent israeli citizens.


    So maybe before you sympathise, try and learn some relevant history.

    If Hamas had the ability to more precisely target their rockets to kill more Israelis, they would.

    They deserve credit for nothing and do not deserve your bonhomie.
